Bird Signs is a seriocomic, narrative short set in a vanishing Louisiana parish. It follows two day laborers who puzzle over a man from their past and what the town didn’t know. “Do buzzards perch where something isn’t dead?” The film considers the value of mythology and the connection between the loss of land and the loss of stories.
Bird Signs is directed by Charles M Pepiton, filmed by Wes Kline with Ira Dern and Rebekah Wilkins-Pepiton, and features costumes by Colin Wintz. The script was written by Damon Falke. Filming is set to begin in February 2022 in Lafourche and Terrebonne Parishes. The film features a diverse cast of 9 actors. The casting process will begin regionally in Fall 2021.
